Millers v Bees Preview
25 February 2017
Rotherham United travel to Griffin Park this afternoon to take on fourteenth place Brentford.
The Millers go into this game on the back of a five-nil thrashing away at Cardiff while Brentford beat promotion hopefuls Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough in their mid-week game.
The Bees last three games have been away from home with their last game at Griffin Park being a three-all draw with second placed Brighton and Hove Albion. Rotherham have yet to get an away win this season.
Dean Smith - Rotherham United have been scrapping away all season and they have had a lot of change. They beat us at their place earlier in the season although I thought we were good on the day but didn't take our chances. We have to make sure that we are fully committed to our performance to get a result. The mentality has been good and our recent performances at home have been very good so we have to do that again.
Paul Warne - Brentford are a young, athletic side and are a threat from set-pieces. They are attractive to watch and deserved the win against Sheffield Wednesday. They are a good little football club and Dean Smith is a good Manager. They are really good at home and it will be a tough game.
Brentford Team News:
Brentford have doubts over Lasse Vibe, Josh McEachran and Philipp Hoffman with centre-back definitely missing due to suspension.
